It’s truly a great time to be alive. More people than ever are questioning the status quo and making the decision to live their personal truths right out loud. That means they’re also deciding they’re ready to go after relationships that really work for them as well, and for many that means officially taking the plunge into the sugar bowl.

The actual ins and outs of sugar dating can be confusing when you’re first getting started though, especially if you’re looking to meet sugar daddies online. Here’s a closer look at what you need to know to make sure you nail things right from day one.

Understanding Sugar

It goes without saying that sugaring isn’t for everyone,  but if it turns out that sugar dating is a good fit for you, it could be a real life changer. However, it’s really important that you go into things with your eyes open in regards to what it does and doesn’t mean to be a sugar baby.

  • Although money is definitely part of what comes with being a sugar baby, it’s not the only thing sugaring is about.
  • Despite what many people wrongly believe about life as a sugar baby, is important to know that sugar babies are not required to have sex with their sugar daddies.
  • Honesty and forthrightness are key components of any good sugar relationship. Life in the sugar bowl especially means being the kind of person who’s not afraid to ask for what they want.
  • No two sugar relationships are the same, just as no two traditional relationships are the same.
  • Your friends and family may not understand sugaring, but that doesn’t make it any less of a valid choice.

Sugar relationships are also called “mutually beneficial relationships” for a reason. They really do involve give and take to equal degrees. That said, if you’re tired of all the games and sick of the unspoken expectations most people take into their relationships, you may definitely be the sort that finds sugaring to be a refreshing change of pace.

Building an Effective Profile

So you’ve decided to give sugaring a good, honest try, because you’re ready for the change of pace. One of the best ways to cast a wide net and meet lots of potential sugar daddies is to build a profile on a top site like Secret Benefits and see what happens. However, top tier sugar daddies are nothing if not discriminating, so you’ll want to keep what they’re looking for in mind when finetuning the details of your site presence.

  • Definitely fill out your profile and make sure it’s complete, but stick to the point as much as possible. Your would-be sugar daddy is a busy guy and probably doesn’t have the time or inclination to read through anything really lengthy.
  • Put yourself right out there as far as what you’re looking for and expecting from a possible sugar daddy. Sugar daddies want a clear picture of what someone is looking to get out of the sugar bowl before getting in touch.
  • Choose your pictures carefully. They should be clear and high in quality. They should make it easy to see what you really look like as well, so skip the artistic closeups for now.
  • Top sites like Secret Benefits give sugar babies the opportunity to verify their identities. Make sure you do this so that would-be sugar daddies know you are who you say you are.

Do all of the above and it won’t be long before you’re getting curious, interesting messages from all sorts of sugar daddies. Chat all you like and play the field for as long as you want. You’re not required to meet up with every sugar daddy who gives you his time, so don’t feel obligated to. Just have fun, ask questions, and make sure a would-be daddy is both willing and able to meet your needs before wasting too much time on one person.

If you’re the type who likes to take the initiative when it comes to dating, know that it’s socially acceptable to make the first move. The search function on Secret Benefits is simple but effective, so don’t be afraid to use it to scan for sugar daddies you like the looks of. If you see someone you like, go ahead and say “hi”. For sugar babies making contact is free, so there’s nothing to lose!
